Kim Kardashian is throwing herself a 40th birthday party on a private island

Kim Kardashian turns 40 years old tomorrow. It’s a big deal, and I can only imagine the kind of spectacle she would have created around herself if this year was not all about lockdowns and the pandemic. In other interviews, Kim has sworn up and down that she wasn’t going to do some big blowout for her birthday because of *waves hands around* everything. But Kim still figured out a way to get around California lockdown regulations, apparently:

Kim Kardashian is secretly hatching a plan to fly about 30 of her closest family and friends via private jet to a private island to celebrate her 40th birthday, Page Six can exclusively reveal. The star, who turns 40 on Wednesday, has rented a luxury private tropical island or retreat, speculated to be in the Caribbean, but is strictly refusing to tell any of her guests the exact location.

Instead, her guests will all be picked up in the early hours next week to board a jet, and only then will they learn the party destination. Sources say the guests have already been tested once for COVID-19 and will be retested again over the weekend to ensure everyone on the trip is safe.

Those making the cut on Kim’s exclusive birthday list include mostly family, including husband Kanye West, sisters Khloé, Kourtney, Kylie and Kendall and mom Kris Jenner — who sources say despite being the family matriarch hasn’t even been told the destination. A handful of very close friends have been invited, including Jonathan “Foodgod” Cheban.

Sources say that the trip will probably happen next week, so not ON her birthday. Some people think that Kim has rented out Necker Island, which is Richard Branson’s private island. Perhaps Kamalame Cay, which was rented out by Serena Williams? Or perhaps Bora Bora. Who knows.

Clips and quotes from Kim’s appearance on My Next Guest Needs No Introduction have also been making the rounds, and David Letterman got her to talk about her work on clemency and pardons with the Trump administration:

Kim Kardashian says she was warned that working with President Trump would kill her reputation. “Trust me, everyone called me and said, ‘Don’t you dare step foot in that White House or your reputation is done.’ And I said, ‘I have to step foot in there or these people’s lives don’t have a chance,’ ” said the reality TV star — who famously convinced Trump in 2018 to commute the life prison sentence of Alice Johnson, a non-violent drug offender.

“Hopefully, for the next multiple administrations, I’ll be working with the White House, helping them with clemencies,’’ Kardashian said. Letterman, during the interview taped in early 2020 but set to air in his new season, tried to push her on what he called Trump’s “unacceptable behavior by a president.’’ Kardashian only replied that she was “extremely grateful’’ to be working with the administration on criminal justice reform.

I don’t really admire Kim’s work specifically with the Trump administration, but I also think it is what is. She walked into it knowing full well what she was doing and who she was aligning herself with and that she was allowing herself to be used as a prop by an unhinged fascist. And to her, the ends justified the means. But it’s a joke to think that she could get any kind of access or entry to, say, a Biden White House.

    With all due respect, “the ends justifies the means” is a horrible way to achieve anything and all it is is a slippery slope of gradually accepting worse and worse situations in order to get what you want. And in her case, it’s just attention.

    As I’ve said before, I’m sure Alice Marie Johnson could give a flying fuck about who got her her freedom or how they did it, but that absolutely does not make it okay to suck up to fascists. What she did cheapened all the hard work that all the groups who make this their life’s work (and have done so for decades) and worse, it took her forever to even slightly acknowledge that all she did was walk into the White House and babytalk her way into a photo op with an even bigger fame whore than she is in order to capitalize on someone else’s work. And frankly, she wouldn’t have even gotten that far if it weren’t for her narcissistic husband being a vocal MAGAt.

    She’s nothing but a dilettante play acting at being an activist and it it gross to see everyone gush about how woke she is because once or twice a year she’ll decide someone is worthy of her benevolence and then use their plight to further her own cause, which is herself.

    Speaking of which, how’s that law career coming? Seems like we haven’t heard much about that lately.

      It’s coming. She posted about it recently.

    • Mac says:

      I think Alice Marie Johnson would disagree since all of the previous efforts to free her failed. Even Obama’s clemency project rejected her petition. The only hope for clemency was some kind extraordinary appeal. I’m not going to dunk on Kim for seeking justice for Alice.

    • Vero831 says:

      agree 1000 percent!

    My birthday was 2 weeks ago. You know what I did? I stayed home, because there’s a pandemic, and because I’m an adult who doesn’t need to have a big, risky gathering to celebrate myself.

    • Gutterflower says:

      Same for my kiddos. One had a bday last month, one has one today, and another beginning of Nov. For all they get ice cream cake with immediate fam (me, hubby and the kids) while inlaws mailed their gifts and will do a group facetime call after dinner.

  3. Sayrah says:

    I don’t know why she couldn’t get an audience with the Biden administration if she intends to continue her work for criminal justice reform. She’s doing good work regardless of whom it was with (DT).

    • Gunna says:

      Agree. She got face time with Hillary in the run up to the 2016 election, and she and Kanye got multiple invites from Obama.

      Like it or not she’s one of the biggest celebrities in the world. If she wants a meeting with Biden she’s as likely to get it as any other A-lister.

  4. FHMom says:

    Eh. It’s her money. She has lots of it and can spend it how she likes.

  5. Jules says:

    She’s turning 40? I don’t think 40 is old but for Kim it must feel like her life is over. Cue the midlife crisis drama and even more plastic surgery, girl is gonna freak.

  6. Bibi says:

    so she flew down to the caribean to scout locations for her birthday really and not to take time with kanye. didnt she go twice in a short period of time?
    Anayway, I think it’s a bit selfish to be traveling in these times, but people (with or without means) are going to do their thing, finding ways to go around safety measures thinking they’re smart…

  7. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    I’ve often looked at my husband’s recliner and thought, “I really want some pants.”

  8. Larisa says:

    I mean, when you are that rich and build your whole life around excess, will that really blow you away or is it just an incrementally and mildly more exciting celebration for bored people? How is a private tropical island really that different from a huge California compound?

  9. Christy says:

    She’s only 40? It seems like she has been in our faces for decades.

  10. j. wilson says:

    Remember when friends and family used to throw you a party?

  11. usedtobe says:

    What ever became of her getting a law degree?

  12. Yawnho says:

    She’s looking “refreshed” lately

  13. SallyTomato says:

    But how many glam squad members and personal assistants?

  14. So What says:

    The Kardashians are Republicans, so of course she isn’t going to bash Chump.

  15. Juju says:

    Someone please tell Ms Plastic Fantastic that there’s a pandemic going on and she shouldn’t ahve a paty with 30 guests and it doesn’t matter where she has that party. Partys are actually one of the biggest contributors to spreading the virus.

    • Hoot says:

      Agreed. We postponed a wedding until next year, and numerous relatives/friends did the same in other states. For the sake of keeping everyone safe, it’s better this way. But go on, Kim, you are “special.”
